Whether it’s motivated by financial or environmental concerns, energy efficiency is now a top concern. Although energy management is becoming easier with the development of smart buildings, many existing, ageing premises are in need of transformation.
The face of the energy world is undergoing an immense sea change. We are already a far cry from the combustibles-reliant generation of only a few years ago.
By minimising energy consumption throughout the whole water cycle (water and wastewater handling) and also maximising energy production from the wastewater facility it has been possible to create an energy-neutral catchment area for 200,000 people in Denmark’s second largest municipality, Aarhus.
The ISO 50001 energy management standard faces its first revision six years on from its introduction.
The once-separate markets of building control and energy management are merging to bring the smart building to life, cut consumption and lower fuel bills.
